Travel News » News from Daphne Sheldrick: Yatta’s first baby born into the wild Get in touch

We have wonderful news! On Friday morning, 20 January, now wild orphan Yatta came to the Ithumba Stockades, a tiny newborn baby sticking close to mum’s side! That’s right, Yatta has had her first baby, born into the wild.

As with Mulika, who had her own first wild born calf at the end of last year, this new life is a reminder, were it ever needed, of the life saving impact of the orphans project. Not only the immediate life of a rescued orphan baby, but the potential future lives which that baby might mother or father. This is only possible thanks to the dedicated teams on the ground and the global network of foster parents and supporters!
